The puppy in the middle is flying with me in the airplane cabin when I hand-carried the precious poodle package to New York.
If you need further information, you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (951) 306-8312. Please only use my phone number in an emergency. E-mail first! I also DO NOT respond to text messages. In your email, let me know what you are looking for as far as temperament, size, color, etc., and what kind of home you can offer them. I also need to know if you ever intend to breed or show your poodle in the future as otherwise, they will come with limited AKC registration.
Infrequently, I have adult POODLES FOR ADOPTION to pet homes. Let me know if you would like to be on that waiting list.
ORDERING: Please be aware that some poodle websites have an "ordering" page. It's not as simple as that. Not everyone can have one of my poodles. I will first need to see what kind of a perfect/loving home you can provide for one of my kids, uh, poodles. I also prefer to keep in touch with you with open, honest communication. This way you will get my help throughout the life of your poodle, and I get to see them grow up and share your stories. They'll always be my kids out there!
PRICING: I price my poodles according to size, sex and color. Special price consideration is given to proven show homes. The price for my poodles starts at $1000 including AKC registration (pet or full, depending upon our agreement) and my full health warranty which protects your investment. The price all depends on male or female, shade of red and predicted adult size. Keep in mind that puppies don't always take after their parents in color or size. I have very high-quality pedigrees which go for much higher prices elsewhere. There is often a waiting list for red females as this is the most requested type. The teacup size (less than 4 pounds full grown) costs more for the extra time and special care they get. I usually also keep the teacup-size puppies longer, up to 4-5 months, before I allow them to go to new homes so I may acutely observe them for any health problems. They are a bit more fragile in the beginning and so a higher risk. If something were to happen to them, I'd rather they be in my care than yours. This will help insure you have a very healthy puppy. Beware any breeder selling or shipping younger teacup puppies. Please be advised that teacups are not to be used for breeding as it is dangerous to their health.
Puppies are transferred only when payment is received in full. At that time, you will receive your puppy's proof of deworming, vaccination, including the actual stickers off of their vaccinations, dates given and approximate dates of future vaccinations your puppy will need. Your AKC puppy registration will be sent to you after you send me veterinary confirmation of your puppy's spay or neuter.
We accept cash or Paypal. No personal or cashier's checks, please.
SHIPPING: I only ship within the United States, not out of this country. Shipping pets in temperature and oxygen-controlled compartments is safer than it has been in the past. Special airlines laws now govern the health and welfare of live animals.
They are hand carried to and from the plane, and never are they left stranded on a runway or conveyor belt. I charge a non-negotiable shipping fee of $350 (free for California deliveries!) which covers my costs for the veterinarian examination, all appropriate vaccinations required to fly, veterinarian's certificate to fly, a suitably sized airlines-approved puppy crate, flight insurance and air fare.
PERSONAL DELIVERY: I also offer the option of personally flying your puppy out to you with no middleman involved. Sometimes that's just the best way for everyone involved to maintain peace of mind. I once flew cross country and the puppy was constantly and completely happy and safe within my care.
The price of delivery depends on where in the country you live. If you are within 100 miles of my home, I could also deliver your puppy to you, but I really prefer that you visit my home first to see it all firsthand to pick out your puppy, that I am not a puppy mill, that all of my poodles are very well cared for, all beautifully groomed, and that they live safely within my own, clean home, not in dog runs, crates or cages. Then after you place a deposit on your puppy and have been here to see my home for yourself, I could meet you closer to your home to transfer your puppy. (That'll save you some mileage as I do live out in the country.)
A $200.00 non-refundable deposit is required to hold a puppy for you and excludes anyone else interested in that specific puppy. Many people offer to give me a deposit to get pick of an upcoming, unborn litter. I prefer to only accept deposits after a litter is born. That is the only way I know what I have available. You deserve to get what you're looking for. After a litter is born, I am unable to hold a whole litter for anyone until they decide which puppy they want. This is unfair to others who might also consider that litter's puppies. Your deposit is given as a good-faith contract that I will not offer your puppy to anyone else, that I will take excellent care of your puppy, and that you will not back out of your commitment. The only time a deposit can be refunded is if your puppy dies when in my home. Then you will have the option for either a refund of your deposit, or the choice of another available puppy.
